I have been a Registered Massage Therapist since graduating from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 1996. Right from the beginning, my interest has been looking at the primary problem but not losing sight of the why, the how and other factors contributing to the dys-function.
There are so many approaches to restoring balance, increasing function and relieving pain but for myself, it is the modality of myofascial unwinding* that I believe in most. My focus is to treat the the body itself but also to facilitate changes in the clients lifestyle through suggested exercises, stretches or changes in every day activities – like having more fun!
There are many ways of treating the fascia and I continue to grow by keeping up to date through research, practice and continued education. To date, my studies have included courses in osteopathy, myofascial unwinding, muscle energy release, active release techniques, posture education, cranial sacral, core stability and more.
*What is Fascia? It is an extensive and continous connective tissue which connects all parts of the body, enclosing yet at the same time separating muscle, nerves, organs etc.
